Farewell to the Festival of the Moon

Thursday 4 November 2021



The Cathedral team is delighted that so many people visited the Festival of the Moon in October – over 50,0000 in all!

Lots of people, many of whom were new to the Cathedral, came and enjoyed the great wealth of events and activities on offer over the three weeks of the festival. It is a great signal that after the worst of the pandemic, the Cathedral is very much open, alive, and back on song.

A huge thank you to all involved!

We would love to host more events like this, and your feedback is important to help plan what comes next. If you came to Wells Cathedral to see the Moon, please spare a couple of minutes to complete this short survey by midnight on Thursday 25th November. Thank you for your support.
